Summer Wine Down and BBQ

"Pairing wine with summer can be a challenge. I usually have my go-to glass of cold Chardonnay to hand but am getting really bored with that and want to expand my list of wine options for summer enjoyment. Won't you help me with that?

The pitiful Rosé of the 70's & 80's has come a long way, so one of the House options will be a Rosé. But, there are plenty of whites and lighter red wines like Pinot Noir and Beaujolais that you might love to bring and share with the group.

The House will provide tastings of 2 different wines to pair alongside a couple of styles of street tacos and a nice summery salad."

How is that for a great invite from Jen, your host? Please bring a bottle of your favorite summer wine plus a small appetizer or dessert to share. If you want to cook it yourself, Jen has a grill!

Side note - if any of you are home improvement aficionados or looking for ideas (i.e. "rehab addict", like me), Jen says she has done some interesting things around the house lately ...

This event is limited to 30 people so please only sign up to attend if you know you can make it!

    IF you would like the carnitas recipe please send me your email address. It is too many characters to post here but I might try posting as two separate comments and see if that works

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
